and sf gov tv, i'm here to discuss proposition c the city currently uses federal, state and local funds to support affordable housing programs for both low income and moderate income households. recent federal cutbacks and reductions in state funding have decreased the funding available for affordable housing programs. proposition c would amend the charter to establish a housing trust fund. the city would contribute $20 million dollars to the fund in 2013. each year the city contribution would increase by 2.8 million dollars up to 50.8 million dollars in 2024. after 2024, the city would contribute an annual amount base the on the 50.8 million dollars but adjusted for changes in the city's general fund revenue. the city would use the fund to build, purchase and improve affordable housing, provide 15 million dollars for a loan program for down payment assistance for moderate income home buyers and emergency first responders and provide up to 15 million dollars for a program that would help eligible households avoid foreclosure. proposition c would change the affordable housing requirem

with local libyans. requests for extensions of more security by the mission in libya appeared to have often been rejected or even officials in washington told diplomats in libya cannot even to make them. or if you make them they will not be supported. we know the tragedy in benghazi ended as it did. we now know that it was caused by a terrorist attack that was reasonably predictable to eventually happen somewhere in the world, and especially on september 11. in closing, as secretary clinton has impanel a blue- ribbon board to fully investigate what occurred, it is much broader for us and for that panel to take up an additional challenge. there are hundreds and hundreds of facilities similar to this around the world. there are thousands of personnel serving this country who at any time in any country could be a target. some of those are high risk and obvious like libya. others may be lower risk. this committee is dedicated to ensure that security is taken differently than it was leading up to the events here. we owe it to our federal employees who put themselves and their families in harm's

is the local end? when will i know that you have reached a critical mass? one justice, does it vary from group to group or state to state? the lawyer from the university of texas says the school looks at all of the student's accomplishments. we want minorities from different backgrounds, he said. but that prompted justice kennedy, likely the critical vote, so what you're saying is that race counts above all. opponents of the affirmative action hope they strike it down, judging from the arguments today, they will scale it back possibly. >> pete williams for us tonight, in washington, thank you. >>> and for years, lance armstrong insisted he never cheated or doped as he won title after title in his sport. recently he stopped fighting and said he would no longer fight the charges by the u.s. anti-doping agency. and now, tonight, they have unveiled their case against him. our senior investigator correspondent lisa myers has a look at the body of evidence. >> reporter: banned for life and stripped of his tour de france victories, there he was this past two weekends the man once known for his stunni

a way to fix america's sluggish economy. "keep it local. if you keep your money local, everyone benefits." "public works. we have to get people working any way we can." "i think we have to change our tax structure. the rich need to pay a little bit more." chicago ideas week brought thought leaders together to address the issue. austan goolsbee seved in the obama administration as the chairman of the council of economic advisors, and he offered the manufacturing sector as a potential fix. 'we're going to have to export more manufacturing, shift the focus of the economy, and that's going to take a long time. it's going to cost money. we're going to have to retrain our workers." advancing that idea focuses on the nation's education system, training the students of today for the hi-tech jobs of tomorrow. 83% of manufacturing firms reported a shortage of skilled technicians, leaving industry executives like ron bullock of bison gear and engineering corporation highlighting job opportunities in his industry.

local criminal justicy system is -- isn't set up to deal and to focus on the most serious5,px crimes. but we don't want to let those serious crimes go, and say they don't relate to the duties of office, just because they're more serious than our local criminal justice system tends to focus onoq%vdú> is it more appropriate to look at it from the perspective that the sheriff oversees violence programs and offenders or that a deputy sheriff or police officer who committed domestic violence in the same circumstances would be treated in x way. i think those are both appropriate considerations. as i said i think both lenses offer helpful information. and i don't think it's a choice really between either or. you have to consider the nature of the misconduct and how it relates to the duties of)rc$xff. and in this particular case frankly the sheriff isn't just like any line deputy, right? the sheriff should be held to a profession would be held to a higher standard than a line deputy. so a line deputy, who might merely be suspended for a particular offense, if someone higher up in th
in the transportation plan that was recently approved and it includes significant federal, regional and local resources, a significant portion of the local resources of that component of the funding plan comes from the mellow rues and the developer impact fees that again are made possible by the development included in the transit center district plan, so today's action is a really crucial step for the project and we'd very much appreciate your consideration of this item and i want to thank the rec and park staff for all the work that has moved the plan to this point and with that, i'll send it back over to josh. >> thanks, scott, if i could have the slides back up, please. just to round out the summary of the plan, scott mentioned the housing component, again, this plan include thing redevelopment area portions of the plan area will realize the construction of over 4500 new housing units in a new downtown neighborhood of which over 30% will be affordable and this is a rather unprecedented number, it's over 1400 new affordable housing units will be created and the open space program over 12 acres of op

under the region has tied transportation investment dollars to land-use, and would local jurisdictions have been doing in terms of planning for growth. while in the past transportation funding is often distributed based on a population-based approach, but other factors such as how successful counties have been in planning for and building new affordable housing is considered in how much funding a jurisdiction receive. also how large the rena allocation is and how much of that is a below market rate is also considered in the distribution formula. this is something that we have asked the region to do for quite some time to tie vision to resources; it is not perfect but it is a great step in the right direction and we are excited about this program. finally based on a lot of advocacy, we got the region to create a new, regional funding program known as the transit performance initiative. the region committed 500 million dollars to this program between now and 2040; in the past the region never had a program like this. they had a freeware performance initiative about better managing t

, are there easy ways for people like tom to transition into local factories that might be hiring? >> there are few opportunities in freeport but tom is in a unique system. his age and education goes against him, but his passion and legacy of hard work are attributed to him, and there could be opportunities for tom and the rest of the workers. the workers aren't slouches. they don't work on widgets, they work on high-tolerance machinery, they are educated and globally competitive, and they have shown that in the marketplace where there is about a 40% margin on these products already. so you have great people like tom who have some things going against him, but his passion, hard work, and love for the community are one thing that will hopefully help him get through. >> jennifer: mayor the human costs of all of this outsourcing cannot be overstated. i really appreciate you coming on to explain. just a quick postscript by the way to this story. also want to let you know about another company that bain capital owns and that's asimco. bane purchased that company i
this moderate position when asked by a local iowa reporter if he will pursue any legislation specifically regarding abortion. >> there's no legislation with regards to abortion that i'm familiar with that would become part of my agenda. >> that statement is at odds with romney's entire campaign. his running mate and his party platform. president obama called romney on it during an interview with abc news. >> this is another example of governor romney hiding positions he's been campaigning on for a year and a half. >> does he lie? >> no, i actually think his position on, when it comes to women's rights to control their own health care decisions, you know, what he has been saying is exactly what he believes. he thinks that it is appropriate for politicians to inject themselves into those decisions. i think governor romney has made it very clear that if a bill comes to his desk that overturns roe versus wade, that he will be fully supportive of that. >> romney's own vice presidential candidate has introduced legislation to restrict abortion. reporters asked paul ryan if he's on the same page
. number one, expect a war on planned parenthood, romney in an interview with a local missouri reporter back in march. >> my test is simple. is the program so critical it's worth borrowing money from china to pay for it? on that basis you get rid of obama care. that's the first one. there are others, planned parenthood, we'll get rid of that. >> okay. there he is, romney chose a vp, by the way, paul ryan, who co-sponsored a, quote, personhood bill. with congressman todd akin aboard. that personhood bill basically guarantees if not the criminalization of abortion, something close to it. the republican platform is out of date. it calls for a human life amendment to the constitution to, quote, make clear the 14th amendment's protections apply to unborn children. unborn children at the age of a couple seconds have the right to property. romney has a right to support a supreme court justice, here's what he wants. >> hope to appoint justices to the supreme court that will follow the law and the constitution and it would be my preference that they reverse roe v. wade, therefore they return to
